Chelf’s Background Quite Divided
When Clint Chelf makes his third start Saturday, it’ll complete an unlikely journey from No. 3 quarterback to ultimate scenario: starting the Bedlam game.
“No doubt,” Chelf said after last week’s win over Texas Tech. “Anytime you can get on a stage like that and perform well, you want to do it. There were a lot of times when I said, ‘I hope that can be me someday.’”
That’s how it goes for an Oklahoma kid, and it was no different for Chelf growing up in Enid.
The question back then for Chelf: “Who to pull for?”
Enid was a town divided. And he lived in a house divided.
“I was pretty neutral,” he said. “My mom’s side of the family is pretty big OU fans. My dad’s is all OSU. I was kind of stuck in the middle.”
At least among family, that’s all changed.
Clint’s brother, Colton, played a solid role for the Cowboys the previous two seasons.
Now Clint is in the Cowboys spotlight, and the family dynamic carries a decidedly orange hue.
“It’ll work out,” Chelf said. “I think we’ve converted some of them over the years.”
